Gillian Forsyth TREASURER, DIRECTOR
Owner, BFF Bikes
Gillian Forsyth has spent nearly 30 years building a career in finance and accounting. As a way to escape from work life and to help manage her Type 1 diabetes, she took to endurance sports. Gillian has completed 8 Ironman triathlons, many ultra-distance mountain bike, and gravel races as well as marathon and ultra running. Gillian also donates her free time as a certified USA triathlon coach to other athletes with type 1 diabetes. As someone who has had a passion for the outdoors and for riding her bike, she was excited to become a part of the Sacred Cycle mission.
“It has been proven that exercise can be a form of therapy. As someone who uses exercise as part of my own therapy, I am a huge believer in the Sacred Cycle programs. There is nothing I like more than the feeling of getting out on my bike. Aside from the obvious health benefits, riding and racing provide me with a sense of empowerment, accomplishment, and strength which carries over to other aspects of my life.”
